What is nano.exe? Should I remove it?

Nano.exe is an executable file that can become malicious if related to trojan

Nano.exe is an executable file related to the Wiki Web Collaboration by Springer-Verlag. When launched, the file automatically executes the application and ensures its full functionality. However, hackers have also started using the same named file to perform malicious tasks on the system. If being malicious, nano.exe launches certain parasite's components or runs a destructive payload. In most of the cases, it is responsible for generating cryptocurrency by misusing the system's resources. Virus developers use legitimate files' names while trying to hide malicious components on the system. So, even if Nano.exe does nothing suspicious, you should carefully check the file for malicious content.

However, the name of this file can also be associated with a trojan horse which can hide in the system's background undetected for a long time. It is difficult to find this kind of malware manually because it silently works in the background. However, a full system scan with reputable anti-spyware can help you remove Nano.exe virus before it starts misusing your system's resources or infects it with additional malware.

Trojan affects CPU power that may lead to the appearance of blue screen errors or system crashes. You can also notice system freezes and similar issues that should be main signs of infection. In this case, scan your system with anti-malware programs like FortectIntego and proceed with Nano.exe removal. 

The malicious file's version can infiltrate your system without your approval

Emails from unknown sources, misleading links, and illegal websites are the main sources of malware. You should stay away from each of them all without even paying your attention because each visit to an infected site or every click on an unsafe link can lead you to malware.

According to PC experts, hackers tend to rely on misleading emails while trying to infect their victims. Since these messages mostly “come” from well-known services and companies, people get caught into downloading the malicious file attached. If you get an email from service you don't use, be aware that this might be an infection trying to infiltrate your PC system. The best routine is cleaning spam email box without looking through it. 

Also, pay more attention while installing free software from non-legitimate sources because you can get infected. Typically, viruses hide under programs presenting themselves as the cracks of legitimate software or illegal updates. To prevent cryptominers and similar malware, make sure you stay away from illegal software.

Nano.exe elimination might be crucial 

To know if you need to remove Nano.exe virus from the system, you should scan your system with a reputable anti-malware program like FortectIntego or Malwarebytes. These tools can help you determine whether the file is corrupted in any way or not. This is an essential step since there is a legitimate version of Nano.exe process which shouldn't be removed from the system to prevent errors and similar issues related to the Wiki Web Collaboration developed by Springer-Verlag.

If your anti-malware suggests that you need to proceed with Nano.exe removal, you should pay attention to the whole process. It is possible that anti-malware will find more intruders on your system, so make sure you update your anti-malware before a scan. As a result, you should get rid of continuous slow dows and crashes after eliminating the cryptominer form the system.
